I’m a mom of 3, a veteran and military spouse. I’ve moved into 20+ homes all around the world. My passion is helping busy people make the space and time for what’s really important to them.
As I told you yesterday when I shared my Bazing! Pencil Cup, my family is big Big Bang Theory fans. We’re excited that the new season starts tomorrow, Thursday September 26th. I couldn’t just stop at one Big Bang Theory Dr. Sheldon Cooper project project, now could I?
My family travels a lot and not just when the military moves us. We take many trips to visit family and to sight see. My parents travel a lot. They drive across country to come see the grandchildren me where ever we’re stationed. Taking road trips is just a part of our life.
If you’ve never seen the episode when Sheldon plans the gang’s road trip, it’s a must-see. One of my favorite Big Bang quotes is, “Remember people, we are only as strong as our weakest bladder.” Too true. Too true.
I just had to make my dad, who is also a Big Bang Theory fan, a travel log notebook. (I know he’s chuckling about now).
I started with a clearance notepad from the craft store, a pen, an old map, card stock scraps, double stick tape and the paper cutter.
The map paper is too thin to use for a notepad cover so I scanned the map and printed it out on a piece of white card stock to give it more stability. It also allowed me to choose a part of the map that has meaning to my dad.
I trimmed the card stock map down to the size of the pad. Then I added a scrap piece of blue card stock to the top of the map and used double stick tape to adhere it to the top and back of the pad.
Next I typed my selected quote into Word and printed it out on another scrap of card stock. I added a couple of coordinating card stock scraps to the back of the quote.
And voila! Dr. Sheldon Cooper’s travel log. Act surprised, Dad, when I give it to you on your next visit.
